Storyline

Bob Griffith sailed into Honolulu Harbor in 1960 and met fellow iconoclast Nancy Hirsch. From that moment they were wedded to the sea. Steering their 53-foot cutter Awahnee to places no small boat had been before, they spent decades navigating the relentless pull of family and adventure. Combining recent interviews with exquisitely textured archival 16-millimeter film-shot by Nancy, on location from Antarctica to Polynesia, in the 1960s and 1970s-Following Seas is not only a story of world records and sailing feats, but of a family who truly lived a self-determined life and made the sacrifices their dream demanded.

Inspiring & well constructed film
30 July 2019 | by phillip_warehamSee all my reviews

This film will likely be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in sailing, but also by anyone who yearns for adventure. The character shown by this family is staggering and inspirational. As with so many other sailing adventures, you see that success mostly comes down to determination.
